POLICE who launched a massive crackdown on drug dealing in Calderdale are looking for these two men.

Khumran Mohammed Taj, 28, and Shazad Ibrar are wanted as part of Operation Irondale.

Taj’s last known address is Pear Street, off Hopwood Lane in Halifax, and Ibrar’s last known address is Paddock Lane in Highroad Well, Halifax.

Despite extensive inquiries by officers, they have not been found.

Operation Irondale, launched in January, has seen scores of homes raided and has resulted in 88 arrests and 400 crimes detected.

A significant quantity of drugs have been seized, as well as firearms, stolen vehicles and about £35,000 cash.

Detectives believe the two men still have contacts in Halifax and are appealing to members of public to help trace them.

Detective Inspector Gary Stephenson, from Calderdale CID, said: “We have made extensive inquiries to find them, however we have been unable to locate them.

“We have taken the unusual step of releasing the photos in order to assist with the search for them and would like to hear from anyone who may have seen them or know where they are.”
